Okay so my son is about 5 months and 1 week and for the past 3 days hes been saying mama. I know he probably doesn't know what it means hes just saying it because it gets my attention. Normally he will roll onto his stomach and just say "Mmmmmmmmmmm ma ma mmmmmmm" kinda like saying something was good mmmmm lol. and he was upset yesterday and looked to me with arms opened and said mama. He just melts my heart. So my question is when did you child say mama?



Oh another question when I was on the phone with my grandma she heard him say mama and got excited she told me that an old wives tale was whatever your childs first word is (Out of mama and dada) thats the sex of your next child? Anyone heard of this before? lol I thought it was fun to hear.

Both my sons started babbling around 4 months, they would say mamamama, nananan, dadadadada



I've never heard that wives tale it isnt true in my case.

First fifteen minutes of her life she said it at three separate times 8)
But she didnt know what she was saying. Id saying she knew what she was saying at about four months, when she would cry shed look at me and say mama. And she knew what i was. But it didnt last long, she says only dadda now and has for about six or seven months. :(

Ahhh please don't say that's true! I want another girl in the future not a boy.. DD said dadda first and that is still her favorite word.

We are having a boy next if that is true! Lol! My dd will only say Ma when she wants some comfort. Her babbling is always dada dada! I try to get her to say mama but she just smiles and waves.
